Black filmmakers were practically nonexistent in the 30’s. And given the newly evolving art form, just 10 years away from silent films, with totally no access to big studio money, tech help, actor training or guidance, this is pretty much a solid attempt. It is criminal that anyone would judge this film against DeMille, O. Selznick or other Hollywood elites. Apples and oranges. Great historical element. Thanks for making it available.

I had seen the movie before. It wasn't great, when compared to hollywood standards. However, it is a record of how ppl who look like me scrapped their pennies together to leave a record of their existence. I give it a 3 for that alone.

Subject: What might have been
If it hadn't been for horrible acting and even worse directing this might have been an OK movie, but the combination of the two makes it your basic token black movie equivalent to about that of a 1st grade Christmas play. Likely shown in slum areas of the country to low paying audiences which is a pity because it diminished peoples skills and abilities.
Some of the actors might have even been decent actors, but as in the times the actors were made to speak using the kings English instead of being themselves and speaking the way they speak in their real lives
